Came here looking for a tortilla press (on recommendation of our concierge) and the vendors were helpful in finding someone who had one ! I read comments that they are aggressive vendors - if you’ve travelled anywhere with people selling things I did not find...More

I found this a better place to buy silver than in Taxco... lots of stores selling silver jewelry and objects, so great selection and easy to negotiate for a fair price. Shopkeepers were clear about what was sterling silver and what wasn't. Also, other souvenirs...More

This artisan market is tiny and kind of intense with shopkeepers trying to beckon you into their stalls. The artisan market in Coyoacan is faaaaar better, and two stories! Plus, it makes for a very charming afternoon, though it is 20+ minutes from the city...More

you'll find picturesque parks and cantinas that will
transport you back to the colonial era thanks to the
brick and stone details of the area. Iconic writers
such as Trotsky and great painters like Frida Kahlo
seeked refuge and inspiration in this area, and you
can see the unique spirit of this neighborhood
reflected in its colorful market where nieves, sopes
